Actively Learn

For those of you lucky enough to have your classroom technology up and running (my iPads are MIA and my laptop cart has eight chargers for twenty-five computers), here is yet another website designed to help your students become more active and engaged readers.  Actively Learn offers an extensive catalog of literature which you can customize with questions, or simply use the pre-made assignments. You can also upload your own texts and questions as well as track your students' responses through the data dashboard.  Simply put, it is the online version of the interactive readers that most likely came with your textbook.

As soon as the technology that was promised to me several months ago becomes a reality, I plan to make this a 2015 classroom initiative.  In the meantime, it will be paper and pencil down in the trenches.
